What else did Eamonn Holmes say?

Eamonn then continued, saying that he has been suffering from chronic back pain for some years now.

Because of this, his swear box has “runneth over”.

“I’m not saying it’s better than a couple of painkilling tablets, but it certainly has an initial short, sharp effect,” he said.

He then went on to say that he understands that people don’t like hearing swearing. However, he confessed that it “doesn’t half feel good” to let the curse words fly when he’s in pain.

Eamonn then pointed out that scientific studies have found that saying the F-word can have a “calming effect” on people.

He then said that swearing was a way for us to process “the chaos of being human”.

“The humbling thing about this is when you go on social media you talk to people about who suffers from this you realise age isn’t a barrier, where you live isn’t a barrier, how much you earn isn’t a barrier,” he said.

“So many of you have this chronic pain from all sorts of different sources,” the GB News host added.

Eamonn eventually found that he had a dislocated pelvis. He later revealed that he had three slipped discs in his back too.
